NZ IT salaries take a jump with private sector leading the way: report

Wellington still holds the highest median base remuneration at $87,500

According to Absolute IT's second remuneration survey of the year, the national base median salary for IT jobs has increased by 7.3 per cent from June 2013 and 0.6 per cent from January 2013, to reach $80,500.

Aucklanders are receiving the most benefits and bonuses, while Christchurch has had the largest increase in median base salary (6.4 per cent) since the firm’s January 2014 report. Wellington still holds the highest median base remuneration at $87,500.

Public sector median salary increased by 7 per cent to reach $87,000, just shy of the top spot held by private sector at $88,000. Smaller private sector organisations with less than a 100 staff have seen a salary payout increase of up to 9 per cent to reach $78,000.

IT security topped the list of salary increases with a 16 per cent increase from the previous year highlighting the demand for the skill set.

The Absolute IT Job Seeker Intentions report 2014 states that the number of ICT professionals who consider their place of work to be a good one has also held steady at 85 per cent.

According to the report, around 67 per cent of employees are still considering a move to a new work place in the next 12 months. A more lucrative salary remains the top motivator for most ICT professionals when they are considering a change of job, with career development opportunities and more challenging work following close behind.

Alongside salary increases the survey notes increases in the number of employees receiving benefits across all IT sectors.

This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
